During Operation AVID RESPONSE (OAR) Marine Corps Lance Corporal Phillip Bunch of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (Special Operations Capable) (MEU(SOC)) teaches Turkish workers at the naval base in Topel, Turkey how to heat Meals-Ready-to-Eat (MRE) using water added to a crystalline heat pack to create a chemical reaction. The workers stand in front of some of more than 1000 tents they unloaded at the storage site. OAR is the US European Command contribution to relief efforts following the earthquake that struck about 65 miles east of Istanbul near the town of Izmit. Turkish officials estimate about 600,000 people are homeless
